Bar Temporary Landing of Excess Immigrants at Halifax

October 12, 1923
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Emigrants for the U. S. unable to land on account of the exhaustion of the quota will not be permitted to wait temporarily at Halifax until the opening of the next quota.

An order prohibiting temporary landing was received here from the Immigration Bureau at Ottawa. The order, it is stated, was issued upon representations from the United States. Hitherto steamship companies have landed many passengers here to await the opening of the next month’s quotas.
